Here are my son's matching bathrobe and pajama shorts that I made over the weekend. He loves penguins, so I found this flannel on the Fabric.com website; they have a large variety of fun prints. I used Simplicity pattern #5329, size boy's large.
The directions are simple and easy to follow. I omitted the inside ribbon ties. The only other sewing supply you need for this robe is interfacing for the band of fabric that is sewn around the neck and down the front opening.
I used Ottobre's boxer shorts pattern, 6/2011 #37, size 140. I will definitely be using this pattern a lot. Its size range is 128 - 170. These have an elastic waist with a button fly, requiring 2 buttons. My son says these are really soft and comfortable to wear.
I think my cost for this project was around $10.
